So after lunch at Chick-Fil-A on Saturday, I came to the hotel for a nap and a shower. (Side note about naps: I either have to take a 30 minute nap or a nap coma of about 3 and a half hours. Anything in between is no bueno. My head hurts and I'm cranky.)
As you can imagine I was a gem when Brandon woke me up for Chinese. As for dinner, it was great going in...coming out...not so much. I found an Arizona State University tshirt at Old Navy for $6. Brandon found a Yoda shirt. You know because he can't buy a Yoda shirt anywhere else. We came home and had an early night.
Sunday I woke up and got dressed and ready for church with Katie and family. It was great! I loved the sermon. After church, we hit up Paradise Bakery which is owned by Panera and is basically Arizona's version of Panera. I had a tuna sandwich with mac-n-cheese and a lemon zest cookie for lunch. Unsweet Tea with extra ice to drink. And it was deeeeeeeeelicious.
Then we hit up the gym. I got in a quick 3 mile run while Katie and her husband did their workouts. Afterwards we hit up the pool. We went down some seriously fun slides and I got a good start on my summer tan!
Katie and I then headed to Old Navy because DUH. We now have two shirts that are the same. I have a feeling that she is gonna wind up being like my sister and text me about something she got and I've already bought it or saw and liked it...states away! We also got to talk blog talk and not have to deal with our husbands look at us like we were aliens from outerspace. I've got a couple of new blogs to read now! I'm really excited because one is an Oklahoma girl and another is a runner! I happen to be biased towards both of those.
By this time Brandon was FINALLY done with his class for the day so we picked up him for some dinner!
We went to the mothership: In-N-Out. Y'all know I appreciate a good cheeseburger and fries. Truly, there is nothing like it. I've had In-N-Out before, but I've never had the animal fries.
Y'ALL. Animal fries are where it's at. For realz.
We might have ordered a second order of them.
After dinner we decided that we probably should go walk some of the damage we did off. So we hit up Tempe Marketplace. As we walked in we saw a picture of a man that looked just like Megan's husband Luke. Minus the sideburns and the necklace, it was totally him.
Then because we had all had a double double and animal fries, we figured we should have fro-yo. I wound up sharing with Katie's youngest, Drew. And y'all, he is the cutest little boy. If my boys look as cute as hers, then I'm sold on boys.
Then we came back to the hotel and passed out.
I woke up today and went for a six mile run. Met up for lunch at Chick-fil-a and then went back to the pool. I stopped at Quik Trip on the way back to the hotel and got a DP and Cheddar and Sour Cream chips for a snack. The sun is still shining a ton. I'm super sad about going to back to cold Michigan. But I didn't dwell long. I opened up the curtains, let in the sun and I'm watching Ellen while waiting for Brandon to get back from class.
We're going for a 3 mile run tonight in honor of the victims from the Boston Marathon and I can't wait. I've got my blue and yellow ready to go. We're having Mexican afterwards.
This has been such a great time! The sun has done wonders for my mood and I'm happy.
What did y'all do this weekend? Happy Monday and Happy Earth Day!
